British builder Princess Yachts has added a second model to its X Class series, the 25 metre Princess X80.
Set to hit the water in 2021, the Princess X80 follows the X95, which established the X Class Superfly range.
Designed by Princess in collaboration with Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina, the X80 is packed with large adaptable spaces, flexible accommodation and extensive outdoor space, thanks to a focus on al fresco living.
The yacht takes inspiration from the “sophisticated sculpted surfaces and long flowing lines of the X95” while retaining the “well respected and internationally recognised classic Princess design,” the yard said.
Defined by high bulwarks and an enclosed wheelhouse, the exterior of the X80 features glazing along the main deck. Elsewhere, the yacht features a skylounge on the upper deck accessible by internal stairs on the main deck, which is dedicated to living areas.
Accommodation on board is for eight guests in four cabins, a full beam master stateroom amidships, forward guest stateroom, double guest to starboard and twin cabin to port. Aft of the accommodation sits the crew quarters, which is large enough for three. Fitted with twin MAN V12 1900 engines, the X80 will have a top speed of 30 knots.
Speaking about the new model, Princess executive chairman Antony Sheriff said: “The X Class’s ground-breaking architecture creates an entirely new product segment as Princess continues to push the boundaries of yacht design.”
The design was revealed just days after the first X95 yacht was pictured undertaking sea trials.
Sheriff added: “The first X95 has just completed sea trials and her revolutionary design has caused a stir. Initial feedback makes it clear that we have a great success on our hands. We have worked over the past two years to envelop all of the X95’s unique qualities into a more compact package. The X80 is just that, another bold step for Princess Yachts.”
